A variety of research indicates that an engaged and motivated student is more likely to be a high-achieving student. But what does student engagement look like in a digital environment? To keep all students motivated—especially those who struggle or are disengaged—educators need to ensure that engagement is built into the DNA of the curriculum. In a digital environment, engaged students experience more personalized learning and are more likely to actively participate in their learning.

Attend this web seminar to learn from Michael Horn and three district leaders about how a well-designed digital curriculum ensures that real learning takes place, engages students and leads to higher achievement. Our presenters will provide examples of districts and schools that use personalized, competency-based blended learning to increase student motivation and graduation rates, and share resources and best practices that can help your district provide a path to success for all students.

Topics will include:

  • How to give students the opportunity to have control over and actively participate in their own learning
  • Ways to provide students with real-time, embedded support when they need it
  • How personalized learning helps develop concept mastery and skills for college, work and life
